Angel Reese's fantastic performance draws high praise from WNBA legend as Sky stage huge comeback

Angel Reese continued her impressive start in the WNBA, leading the Chicago Sky to an upset 83-74 road victory over the Dallas Wings with her relentless offensive rebounding. It was Reese's first career win.  

Chicago trailed by double digits but rallied in the fourth quarter, aided by Reese's and-one, which gave the team a two-point lead it would not relinquish  

The play prompted Wings color commentator Sheryl Swoopes, a WNBA legend, to praise the rookie's natural desire to chase offensive rebounds and recover the ball.  

"One of the most prolific rebounders this game has ever seen," Swoopes said on the local Dallas broadcast. "You have to check her out [if you're defending]." 

Reese finished with 11 points, going 3-of-9 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line. She added nine rebounds, building on her strong performance in the second half of her WNBA debut last week.  

In addition to the and-one putback in the fourth quarter, Reese scored a breakaway layup after slipping past the Wings' defense.  

That was an aggressive move she used frequently in college at LSU, beating opposing bigs down the court before they realized she had made the run to the opposite end.  

Chicago, forced to play shorthanded for an extended period due to rookie Kamilla Cardoso's shoulder injury, had a balanced scoring output. Six players scored at least ten points, led by Diamond DeShields with sixteen.
